Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, creator of the animation classics “Princess Mononoke,” “Spirited Away,” and “My Neighbor Totoro” built this whimsical and wonderful museum to pay homage to animation, creativity, and technology. Kids will be able to see how animation is made, watch Ghibli Studio short films that are only available for viewing at the museum, and live out their dream of hanging out in a cat-shaped bus and becoming part of a storybook.
